There’s just so much to love about this wine. Start with Bandol’s Mourvedre grape in the starring roll – there are a whopping 11 acres of it in all of Napa, so you don’t often see it playing the lead. Then, add red fruit from juicy Grenache and blue fruit and minerality from 110 year-old Carignan grown at the end of Pickett Road in Calistoga (right next door to one of California’s best and most famous Cabernet vineyards). Round things out with a bit of meaty Syrah and juicy, structured, Petite Sirah, and you’ve got a luscious, highly drinkable, red that will knock your socks off. The 2011 definitely reflects the cool, damp, growing season, and it’s undeniably lighter in weight and brighter in fruit than the 2010 or 2009. But, there’s still plenty of lusciousness here and a super-silky texture and layers and layers of depth. Wide open and ready to drink now and over the next 5 years or so. "47% mourvede, 22% carignan, 13% grenache, 11% syrah and 7% petite sirah. Good deep red. Exuberant aromas of candied raspberry and musky licorice. Broad and classically dry but distinctly easygoing, with blueberry and spice flavors nicely supported by supple tannins. The persistent finish shows attractive sweetness."

VARIETAL: Pinot Noir
The 2012 A to Z Pinot Noir invites with vibrant aromas of juicy berries, cherries, lavender and violets, evolving to clove, game, smoke and cherry tobacco. A succulent, focused attack has flavors of blue and red fruits, flowers and earth, then deepens with hints of mocha, gingerbread, green tea and cacao. A very ripe tannic structure is balanced by perfect acidity, giving shape and elegance to the concentration of lush fruit. A beautiful, complex, forward wine results, walking a tightrope between richness and elegance. Built for midterm aging, the captivating A to Z Pinot Noir once again sets the standard for the superior 2012 Pinot Noir vintage in Oregon.
